I can't describe how refreshing it is to see an Abzan EDH deck that doesn't include Sun Titan, Acidic Slime or the Karmic Guide + Reveillark combo. It looks like you put actual creative thought into this deck, rather than simply spewing some EDHREC copypasta. Bravo!
I would recommend the following list, obviously for different reasons for each card:
And, if you want to spend the money on it, Phyrexian Altar
As for cuts to fit any of these in, I'd start by looking at your removal spells. You have a helluva lot of that. I don't know if it's your meta, but it seems like more than you need.

Some potential cards. Most of these might be side-grades or out of budget but are worth noting in the Maybeboard. I have a few of these:
Creatures are obviously optimal, what with elf anthems and counters and stuff. I would try to squeeze in the first three if you can. The tempo of getting your commander down on turn 2 is amazing.
Fyndhorn Elves , Priest of Titania , Boreal Druid , Farhaven Elf , Leyline of Abundance , Castle Garenbrig , Llanowar Tribe , Overgrowth , Reap and Sow , Kodama's Reach , Explosive Vegetation , Nature's Lore , Ranger's Path , Skyshroud Claim , Grow from the Ashes , Emerald Medallion , Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip, Harrow , Circuitous Route
Rishkar's Expertise , Soul's Majesty , Mirror Shield , Zendikar Resurgent , Primal Rage , Heroic Intervention , Return to Nature , Overwhelming Stampede , Overrun , Beastmaster Ascension , Loxodon Warhammer , Colossal Majesty , Rancor , Vivien, Champion of the Wilds , Blossoming Defense , Withstand Death , Titanic Brawl , Ancient Animus , Momentous Fall , Nature's Claim , Once and Future , Regrowth , Wildest Dreams , Road of Return , Creeping Corrosion , Season of Growth , Blanchwood Armor , Sandwurm Convergence , Garruk, Primal Hunter , Vivien Reid , Vivien of the Arkbow , Ghost Quarter ,
Aspect of Mongoose is nice but prevents untapping shenanigans with your commander.
Some obvious out-of-budget stuff here and some lower-powered stuff too but I'll suggest them for posterity.
Llanowar Reborn , Karn's Bastion , Forge of Heroes , The Great Henge , Incubation Druid , Loyal Guardian , Tuskguard Captain , Pollenbright Druid , Solidarity of Heroes , Biogenic Upgrade , Durable Handicraft , Planewide Celebration , Courage in Crisis , Verdant Confluence , Bow of Nylea , Contagion Clasp , Contagion Engine , Hydra's Growth , Path of Discovery , Retreat to Kazandu , Forced Adaptation , Evolutionary Escalation , New Horizons , Nissa, Voice of Zendikar , Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter , Vivien, Arkbow Ranger , Kalonian Hydra , Arbor Armament , Stony Strength , Savage Summoning , Hunger of the Howlpack , Soul's Might , The Crowd Goes Wild , Armory of Iroas , Weapon Rack , Predatory Hunger , Primeval Bounty
I have a Drove of Elves I'm not using

I really like the idea of Fae of Wishes . What would you recommend removing? Or what are the weakest cards for this deck?
Also, Karn's Bastion , necessary or no?

I would think that Vampire of the Dire Moon should be standard in a deck like this. I like the inclusion of Evolution Sage and Vraska, Swarm's Eminence backed up by Stony Strength , Courage in Crisis and New Horizons (at 3 copies of each) allowing your death-touch creatures to feed off Evolution Sage and grow in power. 2 each of Murder and Assassin's Trophy provides back-up creature removal. Everything else should be lands or death-touch creatures, but I would look to focus more on 1- and 2-drop creatures (maybe including Sedge Scorpion ). Among all your 3-drop creatures, only Leyline Prowler and maybe Ochran Assassin offer value for mana. Izoni, Thousand-Eyed is just so expensive to cast that it will seldom work in this deck.

I tried Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter in a few games, and he ended up sitting in my hand most the time. Pollenbright Druid is one cheaper, and after it does its thing it is mildly useful as a chump blocker. Gird for Battle is great though, I dropped two of the Courage in Crisis to add it, its nice having a cheaper +1/+1 option.

I started playing using an Oath of the Gatewatch deck (even though the year was 2019). I got more cards later on to make better decks.
